I tried to pin up a Family of Man sized Hefty bag one year. I reasoned Santa could not bring me a the Super Deluxe Mr. Science Blow Up Stuff Yourself Chemistry Set* if he didn’t have anywhere to put it.
Mom argued that there was no in hell Santa or her were going to let me blow myself up so there was no reason to worry about the size of the stocking and to take it down immediately.
Mom and Santa were so mean.
*They don’t sell chemistry sets anymore. I wonder why.
